Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Best feta recipes

Recipes with zucchini

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Sea scallops with fermented broccoli rabe


You'll need

12 scallops (about 300gm), very thinly sliced horizontally 4 radishes, shaved on a mandolin To serve: extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and finely chopped chives   Fermented cime di rapa 50 gm sea salt flakes 440 gm (1 bunch) cime di rapa, washed, trimmed, leaves and buds separated, cut into 2cm pieces 60 gm daikon, finely chopped 4 spring onions, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 anchovy fillet, finely chopped 1½ tbsp lemon juice 15 gm Sriracha chilli sauce ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes

Method

  • 01
  • For fermented cime di rapa, combine salt and 2 litres water in a non-reactive container, add cime di rapa and soak for 1 hour. Squeeze excess liquid from cime di rapa, transfer to a bowl with remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly, squeezing and pressing with your hands to create a wet mix, then add salt to taste. Transfer to a clean non-reactive container to fit snugly and press to remove air pockets. Weight down with a lid that fits perfectly inside container to cover and compress mixture. Cover with muslin and set aside in a warm place for 3 days to ferment. When fermented, drain, finely chop, and refrigerate in an airtight container until required. Makes about 1 cup. Fermented cime di rapa will keep refrigerated for 2 months.
  • 02
  • Arrange scallops on serving plates, spoon over a little fermented cime di rapa, arrange radish on top, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice, scatter with chives and serve.
This recipe is from the March 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“We love kimchi at Torrisi and thought long and hard on how to make it jive with what we do with our menu,” says Carbone. “We came up with the idea of taking a flowering Italian vegetable, broccoli rabe [also known as cime di rapa], that’s reminiscent of cabbage and fermenting it with anchovies, chillies and garlic.” You’ll need to begin this recipe 3 days ahead.
